Thanks for your effort and your nice comment.

Well... that's a good point Lou. I wasn't considering local when I made that call. seems #1 would have to be a Ruby in that case. #2 sure is a mystery, perhaps Penolta will chime in with a suggestion.

the first shot is beauty
the second is good too except for the background
it may be worth moving the feeder away from it
mind you i have enough problems with normal birds

Gumnut,

Thank for your nice comments. I agree with your suggestion of moving the feeder. Since these pictures were taken I have not had any more Hummingbirds back at the feeder. I think it may be because it is too close to my regular bird feeder that you see in the background.

Lou
